This is a must see cathedral. It dominatea the surrounding town and represents many diverse symbolic carvings in the marble. Of course like most of the churches, if not all cathedrals in Évora, it has a high percentage of hand painted blue tiled walls. The gold of Brazil is used and the volume of artistry makes this a Cathedral to... More

The church played a central role in the historic importance of Evora. Building cathedrals was instrumental in helping Christianity reconquer Portugal from the Moors. The cathedral is like many to be seen in Europe, but this one is built on top of original Roman structures. The steps leading up to the main doors still have the chiseled lettering as you... More

Beautiful doors on the outside even before you enter the Se. Inside the ceiling are lovely and the extensive use of different colours of marbles adds to the grandeur.

Nice visit to the cathedral with outstanding view inside the walls of Evora. You can climb the stairs and walk along the top walls to get an idea of what this might have looked like hundred of years ago. I believe the cost was 3.50 euros. This includes a visit inside the cathedral as well.

A big cathedral that's centrally licated. Well worth a visit and free (at least when I went). Magnificent statues and chandeliers. Most of the it is, however, much like all the other cathedrals scattered across Europe.

Well worth visiting particularly going up to the top of the tower and walking around the roof, this gives excellent views of the town and the size of the cathedral. The building has a very attractive courtyard with access up to a lower roof with views into the garden. We also visited the museum and would recommend this as they... More
